Samajwadi Party chief and former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav has slammed Uttar Pradesh’s govt and said BJP govt is diverting real issues with fake encounters.
Akhilesh Yadav tweeted, “By doing false encounters, the BJP government is trying to divert attention from the real issues. The BJP does not believe in the court at all. Today’s and recent encounters should also be thoroughly investigated, and the culprits should not be spared. The power does not have the right to decide what is right or wrong.”
Gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed’s son Asad, wanted in Umesh Pal murder case, was killed in an encounter by the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) in Jhansi. Another person, Ghulam, with a bounty of Rs 5 lakh on his head, was also killed in the encounter.
